Biophotonics and medical engineering will again be centre stage at the Laser World of Photonics from 22-25 June at the Messe München site.

Newly anointed Nobel Prize winners Stefan Hell and Eric Betzig will be lecturing on Super-Resolved Fluorescence Microscopy at the World of Photonics Congress 2015. The innovative microscopic procedure provides researchers with unprecedented insights into the nano building blocks of life.

The exhibition focus in Hall B3, numerous application panels and the European Conferences on Biomedical Optics taking place in parallel with the trade fair make the leading trade fair a showcase for the biophotonics sector, which latterly posted a global annual market volume of €65 billion.

Jena researchers are working on making fibre lasers usable for diagnostics as well. The goal is spectroscopic tissue analyses directly within the body instead of the taking of tissue samples with waiting times for laboratory findings. Visitors to the Laser World of Photonics can inquire about the status of this minimally invasive tissue spectroscopy in Hall B3 on the bio-photonics research joint stand.

Generative manufacturing is now increasingly used to make implants such as the electrodes for cochlear implants for the deaf and metallic substructures for dental crowns or artificial joints. The Laser World of Photonics and the World of Photonics Congress being staged in Munich in June will be showcasing the full range of what lasers are capable of in this arena.
